Victorian Australian of the Year
|Each year our nation celebrates the achievement and contribution of eminent Australians through the Australian of the Year Awards by profiling leading citizens who are role models for us all. They inspire us through their achievements and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Australia.|
The Awards honour an exceptional group of highly-respected Australians who ignite discussion and change on issues of national importance.
In choosing the recipients of the Australian of the Year Awards, regard is given to the nominee's achievements in the year immediately prior to receiving the award, as well as their past achievements and ongoing contribution to the Australian community and nation.
The Australian of the Year Awards provides all Australians with the opportunity to recognise someone who makes them proud in four categories:
Australian of the Year
Senior Australian of the Year (those aged 65 years or over)
Young Australian of the Year (ages 16 to 30)
Australia's Local Hero
The Awards operates at two levels - state/territory and national. State and territory selection committees select four nominees for each award category, with one of these nominees being announced as the state/territory award recipient. The National Australia Day Council Board select the Australians of the Year from the group of 32 State and Territory recipients. Follow the links for more information on the selection criteria and how recipients are chosen.
The prestigious year round program culminates in the announcement of the national award recipients in Canberra on Australia Day Eve.
The Australian of the Year Awards is a program of the National Australia Day Council.
